ENERGY RECOVERY FROM DIGESTER GAS AT HYPERION
Abstract:The Hyperion wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) has been recovering energy from digester gas (biogas) for over 55 years. The energy recovery techniques used encompass internal combustion engines, gas turbines, staged-combustion fluidized bed gasifiers, packaged boilers, and combustion in the boiler of a full-size utility steam plant. Included in the history of these efforts, is a description of the successful and problematic approaches taken along with specific technical solutions implemented to treat process problems such as siloxane.
